Scar Revision

Scar revision in Dubai is a specialised field of dermatology and plastic surgery that focuses on minimising the appearance of scars, so they blend seamlessly with the surrounding skin tone and texture. This category encompasses a wide range of techniques, each tailored to the specific type of scar, be it from injury, surgery, or acne. Dr. Shehzadi Tasneem, a renowned expert in scar revision treatment in Dubai, emphasises the importance of a personalised approach to each case, ensuring the best possible outcome for every patient.

The procedures involved in scar revision vary greatly, ranging from simple topical treatments to more complex surgical interventions. Topical treatments, such as gels, tapes, and external compression, can reduce scar size and lighten their colour. Injections with steroids or fillers are also joint, helping to flatten and smooth raised scars. These non-invasive techniques are often the first step in scar revision and can be quite effective for minor scars.

For more pronounced scars, surgical options are available. These include excision, where the scar is surgically removed, and the skin is carefully sutured or grafted. This method is particularly beneficial for large or deep scars. Laser therapy has also become increasingly popular. It uses focused light therapy to remove or reduce the appearance of scars. This method is highly effective for scars that have caused changes in skin colour or texture.

In addition to these techniques, there are other methods like dermabrasion, where the top layers of skin are removed, and micro-needling, which involves puncturing the skin with tiny needles to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. These methods are beneficial for atrophic scars, such as those caused by acne.

An essential part of scar revision is the aftercare. Proper care can significantly affect the outcome of the treatment. This includes protecting the area from sun exposure, following a prescribed skincare routine, and, if necessary, attending follow-up appointments for additional treatments. Patience is vital, as scars can take months or even years to heal and improve in appearance fully.

Psychological support is also essential for scar revision. Scars, especially on visible areas of the body, can profoundly impact an individual’s self-esteem and quality of life. Many clinics, understanding this, offer counselling or support groups as part of the scar revision process.
